Light Action In the Caribbean: Stories

Written by

In his first new work of fiction since Field Notes (1994), Barry Lopez embraces fable, historical fiction, and contemporary social realism in these spellbinding stories, all informed by his deep spiritual connection to the natural world.

Moving from fable and historical fiction to contemporary realism, this book of stories from Barry Lopez is erotic and wise, full of irresistible characters doing things they shouldn’t do for reasons that are mysterious and irreducible. These are the works of a master at the top of his form. As always, Lopez’s stories transcend his subjects, linking human culture and landscape, poetry and philosophy, emotion and the earth’s mysteries.
